Abstract: Sports are world phenomenon deeply ingrained in North American culture.
The existing research suggests that sports outcomes have the potential to significantly
influence the lives of emotionally interested fans. However, the question
of relationship between sport outcomes and birth rates is not yet welldocumented.
Hence, the objective of this thesis is to establish whether there
is a significant relationship between overall victories in major North American
sport competitions and the number of births in the relevant territorial units. In
general, no conclusive evidence was found that an overall victory is associated
with any significant effect. However, more telling results were obtained for individual
competitions. Interestingly, our novel method considering the natural
variability in pregnancy length outperformed the usual approach adopted in
similar studies as results show that R2 and adjusted R2 are both larger for the
new method in all comparable regressions.
